About Merlet Brothers Blend VSOP CognacLocated in the picturesque village of Saint-Sauvant in the Cognac region in southwestern France, the Merlet & Fils Distillery is a 5th generation, family-owned brand that traces its beginnings back to 1850. In 1973, Gilles Merlet took over the distillery and today, him and his sons are still in charge. After distilling for large cognac houses for 160 years, Merlet began developing their own collections of fruit liqueurs and making cognac in 2010. The awards came flooding in soon after.
The Merlet Brothers Blend cognac is dedicated to brothers Luc and Pierre, sons of Gilles Merlet – both employed at Merlet & Fils. Made with eaux-de-vie that have been aged for at least four years, this is a cognac for the new generation. For this fine blend, four eaux-de-vie have been selected from Fins Bois crus and one from Grande Champagne.
The different ages of the blended cognacs result in the unique style of this luxurious offering with the vigor of the youngest eaux-de-vie and the complexity and maturity of the oldest coming together for a perfect harmony. This superior cognac is an elegant union of fruity and floral aromas. A delightful sipper on its own or in cocktails.
This bottle was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
